“Learning Reda technique opens up a new door to oriental dance full of possibilities.” 

Reda technique developed by the great master, choreographer and creator of the theatrical form for Egyptian folklore, Mahmoud Reda, attributes oriental dance qualities such as fluidity, musicality and understanding of body movement on stage space. Properties which are for choreographic creations very helpful. In addition to its great importance for the understanding and execution of Egyptian folklore, it has become a great foundation for what we know today as Andalusian dance.
